Question regarding drivetrain upgrade?
I think its time to uprade part of my drivetrain. Currently im runing a 1x8 setup with all stock components. My bike uses SRAM X4 drivetrain components...Well the rear derailleur had been damaged, and after getting it repaired twice I figured I'd just get a new one and upgrade in the process.
I was gonna go with a 1x9 or 1x10 setup with either SRAM X7, X9, or X0 components. Not sure which untill I do a little more research.
My question is besides the rear derailleur, shifter, and 9 or 10 speed cassettes, are there any other components essential for the upgrade? Can I stay with my stock cables? I figured there is no need to uprade the rest of the drive train. Money is tight, and I'm currently saving for a new bike.
Thanks in advance guys
